Lemon in Water

It is important to drink enough water everyday to stay fresh and hydrated! Our body is 90% water. The recommended daily amount is 1500-2500ml which is about 3-5x 500ml glasses of water, juices or smoothies! Drinking water is also fantastic for detoxing and gives you radiant, clear skin!

Every morning I like to have a refreshing glass of lemon juice squeezed into water.P1010161

The benefits of this include:

  • Rehydrates you first thing in the morning
  • Stimulates liver detoxification
  • Stimulates your digestive juices before breakfast
  • Activates your root, solar plexus and throat chakras.

Note: Lemon is acidic and if drunk daily in the long-term it may cause tooth erosion. It is best to drink it through a straw to avoid contact with the teeth.


500ml Filtered water

1/2 Lemon


Pour yourself a glass of water.

Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the water, making sure to catch the seeds!

Enjoy your refreshing drink!

Cashew and Almond Milk

It is really rewarding making your own cashew and almond milk. It is so quick to prepare and just as tasty as the shop bought almond milk, but without the artificial preservatives! I added cashew butter for extra deliciousness! Store your cashew and almond milk in glass bottles to be eco-friendly.

Vegan Mango Lassi

This sweet drink is enjoyed in India with a meal. To make it vegan I have used almond milk inside of dairy milk and my Banana & Cashew Ice Cream recipe as the vegan yoghurt. It is quick to make and so delicious!


Serves 4

2                      Ripe Bananas

50g                  Cashew Nuts

2                      Ripe Mangoes

200ml              Almond Milk

300ml              Filtered Water

2 tbsp              Agave Nectar

¼ tsp               Ground Cardamom

Make the vegan yoghurt by blending the ripe bananas and cashew nuts for 30 seconds.

Slice the mangoes into quarters and then peel off the skin. Chop up the flesh and add to the blender along with the rest of the ingredients. Blend for 1 minute until smooth.

Pour into a tall glass and serve immediately!
